Wine tasting note: 1997 Quinto dos Roques Dao Touriga Nacional

1997 Quinto dos Roques Dao Touriga Nacional

20th Jan 2000 GBP15 Portugal Table Red

Deep ruby red - even and bright. Violets and mulberries on the nose, some vanilla with a hint of volatility. Full bodied with juicy black cherries, new oak, very crisp acids and ripe tannins. Grippy. Quite clean fruit finish with some spice coming through. Good now (but breathe it for a couple of hours) but will last well over 5 to 10 years.
